A single faded purple tulip in macro. Faded flowers have a certain wistful beauty and are visually quite as interesting as fresh flowers. If not more so, in my view.
Shooting close-up with a macro lens creates a very shallow depth of field. This image is blended from 70 individual shots taken at incremental focus points to achieve this degree of depth of focus and clarity.
